What is the function of geotextiles?

Geotextile is a kind of polymer material, which has the functions of waterproof, isolation, reinforcement and filtration. The following are the main functions of geotextiles:

Waterproof and water-proof function: Geotextile can be used as a waterproof layer to isolate water and moisture and prevent water penetration and water leakage. At the same time, geotextiles can also be used to isolate pollutants, prevent them from entering water bodies, and protect the environment.

Reinforcement: Geotextiles have high tensile strength and rigidity, and can be used to reinforce soil and stone bodies to improve their bearing capacity and stability.

Filtration function: Geotextiles can be used as a filter layer for soil, gravel, sand and other filter materials, which can effectively prevent debris and sediment from entering the water body and protect the water environment.

Prevent soil erosion: In areas of soil erosion, geotextiles can be laid on the surface to form a protective layer to prevent water and wind erosion and erosion.

Protecting buildings: Geotextiles can be used to protect buildings from moisture, water, sand, etc. on the base layer, basement, and outside of walls.

In short, as a multifunctional civil construction material, geotextile can play its unique role in various environments, protect the environment, and ensure the stability and safety of buildings.
